Description

I was visiting a long time patron and great friend when the notion came up to do a painting based on Leonardo's Last Supper, but using rockstar's who have already made their way to the other side.

We thought it was a sensational idea and should be a lot of fun. This painting The Last Session is a result of that inspiration.

The first challenge was the selection of the 12 musicians. From a possible list of about 20 we finally agreed on these 11 men, plus Janis.

From the left to right: Otis Reading, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Bob Marley, Jerry Garcia, Frank Zappa, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison.
